the Left? What`s left of the Left? Those creatures are fast becoming extinct.That is a planetary phenomena and not confined to Israel.In the US, Europe and elsewhere critical dissention have no backers anymore.You either go with the flow.stay wishy-washy or become foam-mouthed demagogic. The US used to be a place where debate and dissent was almost accepted as an article of liberal democratic faith.But last quarter of century critical culture is become less and less especially under the present Bush adminstration. More so since 9/11.Any argument against the government policies wether Foreign or national. Is seen as unpatriotic pro-terrorist.If you are not with us you are against us.The press has become meeker than sheep, and the academic community is being threatened or intimidated. Look what happened to John Kerry a war hero who was villified, ridiculed and vanquished by the hatchet machine of the republican rightists.
